Coldplay has released the video for their latest single, "Magic." The clip was directed by Jonas Ňkerlund and stars Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) as a magician, while Chris Martin portrays both her loyal assistant and her brutish husband. "Magic" is taken from Coldplay's forthcoming album, Ghost Stories, which will be released on May 19. Check out the video below:

and Spike Lee are teaming up to film Em's video for the song "Headlights," which features fun. frontman Nate Ruess. Eminem wrote on Twitter: "Spike came out to The D for the 'Headlights' video... Coming soon." Lee also shared the news when he tweeted: "Detroit's Finest EMINEM And Me Working Together On His Short Film. Historic. Who Woulda Thunk It." There's no word on whether Ruess also will appear in the video.

Theory Of A Deadman will release the new album, SaVages, on July 8. SaVages is heralded by the new single, "Drown," a snippet of which can be heard now in a video teaser posted on
www.theoryofadeadman.com. Produced by longtime collaborator Howard Benson (Halestorm, My Chemical Romance), the single arrives at rock radio on April 22, the same day the track goes on sale at iTunes. Frontman Tyler Connolly commented, "We went back to where we belong on this record, back to the angst, back to the darkness. We veered off the road a bit on this one but it took us right to where we needed to be."

Queens of the Stone Age have added four new tour dates to their docket for July. The new shows are: July 9 in Montreal; July 12 in Bangor, ME; July 16 in Port Chester, NY; and July 20 in Philadelphia.

Last Thursday, M.I.A. was headlining a show in New York while Janelle MonŠe was playing in Los Angeles. However, the singers still managed to make cameos at each other's concerts thanks to the magic of holograms. A hologram of MonŠe reportedly joined M.I.A on stage in NYC to deliver a verse on "Bad Girls," while virtual M.I.A joined MonŠe to rap on "Q.U.E.E.N."

Mastodon confirmed in an interview with Paste that they'll be releasing their sixth album later this year, titled Once More Round the Sun. "A lot of people ask us if it kicks off where [2011's] The Hunter left off, and to a large degree, I suppose yes," said frontman Troy Sanders. "We recorded it and took it on the road with us, and then we headed back to our rehearsal space and started working out ideas. I've had a lot of time to ingest this record, and it's solid. It's a large slab of granite. I'm once again completely proud of these guys."
